bella napoli

My grandma's brother comes in town once a year and it's always a time for celebration. We spent Saturday evening catching up, eating Italian and drinking wine. A great time, as always.

{gift tags}

I always like to deck out our Christmas packages in ribbons, bows, and sparkles, but this year Tim got in on the action and made gift tags. He designed and screen printed them on mat board. We used butcher's paper and baker's twine for the wrapping and ribbon. It turned out to be more labor-intensive than both of us anticipated, but the time we spent on it was totally worth it.

{christmas at the sullentrup's}

I love the way the garland hangs over our bed - can I leave it all year? The next one is the entrance to our office. Tim keeps commenting that I have "Santa" hanging in there. It is - in fact - a sailor, but I guess he can call him Santa for a few more days. Our tree turned out so pretty this year. I added some pheasant feathers Tim brought me from his hunting trip. The presents are only half wrapped. We are making some tags for them. I'll post those when they get done. Three stockings - Mine, Tim's, and Mason's. The garland made it's way to each part of our house, including as wreaths over our frames hanging in the living room. Finally, Tim was responsible for our chalkboard - he had a great time. He ended up writing all of the lyrics to "Feliz Navidad" along with a few maracas in case you couldn't "feel" the music already. He was really proud of it.
